This woman is giving a tour of her city. Where is she, and (for fun) can you catch the name of the secret restaurant she’s taking us to?

Check Answer

Всем привет, Ребята! Сейчас я нахожусь в Санкт-Петербурге и направляемся мы вместе с вами в секретный ресторан “АПТЕКА.”
Hi to everyone, guys! I’m now located in St. Petersburg and we’re headed together with you guys to a secret restaurant (called) “The Pharmacy.”

SNEAK PREVIEW: In Ep. #14 we learn a very important grammar point, which is nicely demonstrated here: Since she is located in St. Petersburg, she must add that “yeh” sound at the end. (Look for that in Ep 14)
